I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today!  This 4 ingredient instant pot teriyaki chicken and veggies could not be any easier and I know for me, easy meals win.  Before I get into the recipe, I have a confession to share.

4 ingredient instant pot teriyaki chicken and veggies

Lunch has been a hard meal for me lately.  I find I’m either on the go and don’t pack food well or hurrying to make lunch for the kids/clean up/get them down for naps.  Either option leaves me eating snacky lunches.  If we are home I grab what I see in the fridge or kind of munch on some of the foods the kids are eating.   If we’re out and finishing at the gym or running errands I eat what I’ve quickly grabbed which is not always enough.  Like earlier in the week for example – I grabbed a banana and a leftover salmon burgers and called that my lunch after teaching.  It was not enough!  I then just feel hungry all afternoon and continue snacking until I eat something more substantial.

After too many days like that I said enough!  I need to prep something ahead that A) has vegetables and B) has protein and fat and C) I can grab and go and like eating cold.

This 4 ingredient instant pot teriyaki chicken and veggies did the trick!  It was insanely easy to make in the instant pot and tastes so good.  I LOVE coconut aminos and use it in my cooking all the time.  I actually prefer this soy sauce alternative over actual soy sauce.  And it’s better for you – less sodium and no soy!

Your 4 ingredients are boneless skinless chicken thighs, broccoli, carrots and coconut aminos (plus sea salt and pepper).  I cooked this recipe in a 6 QT Instant Pot.  You could definitely make this on the stove top and still enjoy the yummy flavors, it would just take a bit longer with more hands on time.

Keep it low carb by eating as is, or add some rice (I love my rice cooker!) for a complete and balanced meal.  Either way, you’ve gotta get this easy peasy meal in your life.  I love it warm, and I love it cold too, which is just what I need on those days I’m running around.  Now I can stay fueled up!  Enjoy his one, my friends!

  1. As soon as we are officially settled into a new home I am getting an Instant Pot. Been wanting one for awhile, and since I had to get rid of all my electrical appliances when we left Australia, I might as well get one that has multi functions.

    1. I’ve been loving it! So far I’ve used just the saute and pressure cooker functions, which are great! I’ll keep a stockpile of winner recipes for you to try when you have one 🙂
